A bit of a mixed bag

I didn’t produce much this weekend. I had other things on my mind.
I was asked to produce a custom bat for a friend. Never having turned a bat before I decided to do a rough trial, before butchering a perfectly good piece of timber. This was knocked out of a bit of a broken scaffold board.

The prospective owner is happy with the outcome, and I now have a new toy for walking the dog.
The little bit of yew holding up the thick end is yet another tealight holder. I keep being asked for these. People have a love for the little candles for some reason.
This particular one is made to have a glass insert in it.
Of course, no weekend would be complete without me attacking a bit of cherry. I did a trial of a wedding goblet from a scrap piece. The real piece will have a much larger vessel, and the rings will be properly finished before parting them off.

Not too bad though for something that would otherwise have ended up in the bin.
I would quite like to have the real piece done quite soon.
